Social Media Standout

With simplicity living at the heart of The Ordinary, the 40-plus piece line fuses time-tested technologies and formulations you know and love with brand transparency and none of the hard-to-pronounce chemicals. While the heroes of the collection—retinol, vitamin C and acids—are nothing new, the way they are presented (think of shopping for must-haves based off of the ingredient as opposed to the concern you want to target), and their affordable price point, are.
